Breakfast

The first meal of the day starts with all the right fixings at Eggsfruits – from café au lait and smoothies to bagels and eggs a multitude of ways, this cafe will help fuel your day of wandering the streets. Walk off breakfast with a tour of the Sherbrooke’s 11 fresco murals, which celebrate the city’s history and citizens.

Eggsfruits, 4200 King Ouest Sherbrooke AC 819-562-8686

Lunch

Savour the European way to dine with a table on Restaurant Le Bouchon‘s terrasse, or when the temps turn cooler, a spot near the window in the light-filled modern dining room. The contemporary French menu includes favourites such as bavette de boeuf or pork filet with citron and Dijon, but those in the know will order confit du canard, a regional specialty. Finish with a dessert plate with selections from Fromagerie de la Gare, a well-known local cheese boutique.

Fine dining and exploration go hand in hand on The Orford Express, a refurbished train that takes guests from Sherbrooke to Magog and back, as they experience a four course dinner, a video and audio history of the area, live music and the opportunity for an after-dinner stroll by the Magog waterfront. Quebecois hospitality make this a memorable dinner on the rails through the Eastern Townships.
